Might have Lived

Imprison hope and take away her wings.
Poison birds until each no longer sings.
The storm is near, so run away.
The crossfire ceased, but still hell stay.

Hes sleeping under every star,
To proudly show them each new scar.
Peace is here. Oh, what Id give,
To see the boy who might have lived.

I didn't understand this completly, but it has an odd hypnotizing thing about it that forces me to like it. I love the rhymes. Very good!

This is absolutely stunning, Amanda! I don't normally give five stars, I'm very selective in what I read, but I must confess to you, that this poem struck in me a few chords and resonated vividly in my heart. You will not always write like this, for this was an inspirational moment in your life. None of us can come up with poetry such as this, every time, even if we wanted to. But the fact that you were inspired to write something like this, is a good indication that you are a great poet! Thank you for sharing this wonderful masterpiece!

Oh my....Amanda...this took my breath away. The flow, the rhyme, the sorrow...the imagery...this has the amazing talent that I'm sure would strike all the great poets of the past...speechless. What I'd give to be able to write like you. I have never read a work more amazing in my life...
